As you see, the xterm is displayed from 11:09:39, it exited at 11:09:49,
when the job received
a SIGTERM.   Any idea what is happening here?

Have a look at your SUSPEND expression in your condor_config file. If it is set to the default UWCS_SUSPEND expression, then your job will get suspended almost immediately, as that expression looks at "KeyboardBusy", i.e. if it thinks there's been "keyboard activity" (as would be triggered by the xterm) within the last minute then it'll suspend the job. That would explain the "Suspending all jobs." log message at 11:09:44.
